Watch the Open String Technique online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Stu Hamm U: Slap Bass

There are so many ways that you can incorporate open strings into your slap playing to get some really cool sounds and effects.

I have written numerous songs using this technique like the opening to "Who do you want me to be today" and the example that I play as an intro to this section, which is a few sections of a song called "The Call of the Wild" from my album, Count Zero.
